The bad knee

11 Mar

For a few months now, I’ve been having pain in my left knee. It was manageable for a while but in the last few weeks it got to be too much. I finally made it to the doctor and they took x-rays and did an MRI. No problem with the meniscus nor with the ligaments. The culprit is a piece of errant bone that has grown under the knee cap.

The result is that I have to stop putting stress on the knee while we do treatment and therapy. This unfortunately includes getting on my knees to dig holes, which stops all detecting for now. It has been a week since my doctor visit and I have not detected at all. It feels a bit strange and I am beginning to feel the effects of not getting outside on a regular basis.

On a positive note, I have been spending a lot more time with my boys and I love it. I can’t wait until they get a bit older so that they can come with me on my hunts.

Hope to get back on it soon.
